[wp-hackers] Writing plugins with classes

Hey guys-

Maybe someone can give me a quick pointer here. I've always wrote  
plugins procedurally, but decided with this new one to write as a  
class. Problem is, I'm obviously screwing up some syntax somewhere  
because the class is being redeclared. There's really only two places  
it could be happening and it boils down to WP syntax, not PHP... Help.

So I have a class with a function to add a administrative submenu  
under management:

class myclass {
	function admin_manage()
	if ( function_exists('add_management_page') )
		add_management_page('Thingy', 'Thingy', 1, basename(__FILE__), array 
(new myclass(), 'admin_screen'));
	function admin_screen
		echo "My page";

Then I hook on admin_head:

add_action('admin_head', array('myclass', 'admin_manage'));

What am I missing here?

The error in WP 2.1 is:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class myclass in /home/emmense/ 
public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-103bees.php on line 11

The only two places I could be redclaring is in the  
add_management_page() call or the add_action() call...
